GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - The hot water is back on at Morton House Apartments in Grand Rapids after being off for three days.
Some residents contacted Target 8 over the weekend, alerting us to the problem.
The complex at 55 Ionia Ave. NW in Grand Rapids provides subsidized housing for people with low income. The building has more than 200 units.
Residents told Target 8 investigators the water was completely off Friday and when it came back on there was no hot water. Several residents said apartment staff would not give them any indication when the problem would be fixed.
"You have people here with families that really care," said Diedre Jemison who lives at the Morton House. "Just because we're at a low-income place doesn't mean that you have to live like you in filth."
Apartment management did not return a call to Target 8. But after our inquiry, residents said a maintenance worker did come to the building and told them the hot water would be back on Sunday evening.
A resident called Target 8 Monday morning and said the hot water was flowing in the building.
